This paper is motivated from the question if the use of spatial
sounds enhances learning in multi-modal teaching aids. In a
basic pilot study the consolidation of serial stimuli was tested
for unimodal conditions (visual; auditory) and a bimodal
condition (spatially congruent, audiovisual). In contrary to
our hypothesis, the audiovisual condition did not show better
results than the visual one. In this particular test the auditory
display was clearly inferior to the two other ones.
